The mummies have arrived in Warframe. The free-to-play game has implemented the first of many planned updates for 2016, adding a new quest, updates to Reactor Sabatoge missions, and a new mummy-themed Warframe.

The new Warframe — named Inaros — weilds powers of death, decay, and the desert; all the things you’d expect from a member of the undead. His abilities include:

  • DESICCATION – Blast enemies with a wave of cursed sand that blinds them and steals their health.
  • DEVOUR – Hold power to trap target in quicksand and draw them in for devouring; this steals health and ultimately creates a friendly Sand Shadow.
  • SANDSTORM – Become a whirling spiral of sand that sends enemies flying and devours those trapped in quicksand.
  • SCARAB SWARM – Charge to transform health into hardened scarab armor. Discharge to blast enemies with a scarab swarm; survivors have their health drained and bestowed on allies.

In addition to the new Waframe, players will also be able to exerience a new quest searching for treasure under the sands of Phobos. There are also a variety of new enemies to defeat.

Full details on the expansion can be found on the Warframe site.

    Already finished building everything. The most work I had to do was gather all those plastids

    And along the awesome update came a graphical update with engine optimizations. Or at least that was on the mind of the developers. The optimization went pretty well, for some… most of the players have higher FPS than before, but like with any optimizations, some graphics cards just don’t want to go with it. While most of the players have it better than before, the game became almost unplayable for some. I even heard about some high-end PCs struggling because of the modifications. I hope they fix it up soon, no shooter is fun below 15 FPS.

      Actually you go through the Sands of Inaros quest line killing certain enemies around 10-20 of each for the first two sacred vessels then it’s about five for the last one. You get each piece after you’ve filled a sacred vessel and returned it. The sacred vessel has to be equipped in the gear inventory while hunting for them or it won’t count. the primary and melee is in the marketplace and the secondary is in the infested lab in the clan dojo. If you’re really focused on the quest it moderately takes a few hours.

        Ya need to fullfill the first vessel with 60 enemies, 20 the second and indeed 5 the last one
